Roku Rumored To Have A 4K Model On The Horizon

A world where 4K UHD is a standard is approaching faster than we all imagined with cell phones already getting 4K displays and 4K cameras integrated within them. Major HDTV manufacturers have been pumping out 4K-ready consumer models for quite some time now although the issue still rests with the lack of 4K content available for viewing on these TVs.

Roku may have a solution for this problem soon should the rumors be true. According to various sources, the company is on the verge of announcing a 4K-capable Roku model that will output compatible content at its native 4K resolution on models that support it. The rumor started after a lesser-known streaming service called Cinema Now posted the following promotion:


With 4K being the primary selling point, we also expect to see improvements in both the internal hardware and some improvements to the software/UI. At this stage, there is no confirmation from Roku, so this is all just speculation. Although when you take into consideration that the Roku 3 was released in March of 2013, it makes sense for a replacement to be coming very soon.
